Sleeve Gastrectomy is Wildly Effective When Performed by Dr. Feiz
Bariatric surgery is a term that refers to a growing number of procedures that have proven to have life-changing results for many morbidly obese or very overweight patients. In Southern California, one of the leading practitioners of these weight loss surgery solutions is Michael Feiz, MD., FACS.
Widely admired for his expert knowledge, surgical ability and warm, empathetic approach, Dr. Feiz has garnered expert skill in performing procedures that range from minimally invasive, FDA compliant Lap Band surgery to incredibly effective sleeve gastrectomy. When performing this procedure, also known as vertical sleeve surgery, Dr. Feiz will remove 75-85% of his patient’s stomach, reshaping the remaining portion into a sleeve-like shape.
This dramatically smaller stomach effectively restricts the flow of food particles to the intestines, leading the patient to experience a faster-acting and longer-lasting sensation of satiety while eating less in each sitting. In a matter of weeks, many patients already experience dramatic and safe weight loss, often leading to substantially enhanced health. In fact, recent studies in the New England Journal of Medicine show that gastrectomy surgery can dramatically improve the symptoms of Type 2 diabetes. Other studies have indicated a substantial and positive effect on hypertension and other co-morbidities as well.
